    when Tricky Dick made his resignation speech.  I was sitting on a sofa in the Student Union on the Minneapolis Campus of the University of Minnesota, which I was attending at the time.  The room, which was generally very quiet and really not much used, was packed to the rafters with students sitting on the floor, on chair arms, on laps, you-name it.  Anyway, when he made the announcement, cheers rang out.  You'd have thought a U of M player had made a touchdown against arch-rival U of Wisconsin.  Just a cacophony.  Quite amazing.  Of course, at the time, U of M students were pretty well politically engagée.  A totally different world then, and I miss it.  Among other things, at the time, what very few "Young Republicans" were around kept a VERY low profile, for they were generally reviled...  We weren't stupid then... :-(
